Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.

Our Endless Numbered Days, Claire Fuller
 
1976: Peggy Hillcoat is eight. She spends her summer camping with her father, playing her beloved recordof The Railway Childrenand listening to her mother's grand piano, but her pretty life is about to change.
 
Her survivalist father, who has been stockpiling provisions for the end which is surely coming soon, takes her from London to a cabin in a remote European forest. There he tells Peggy the rest of the world has disappeared.
 
Her life is reduced to a piano which makes music but no sound, a forest where all that grows is a means of survival. And a tiny wooden hut that is Everything.
 
'Fuller handles the tension masterfully in this grown-up thriller of a fairytale, full of clues, questions and intrigue' The Times
 
Winner of the Desmond Elliott prize in 2015
